ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
Established in 2001, and organized by the graduate photography students at Texas Woman’s University and the Photographic Artists’ Coalition, the annual Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibition provides a national venue for the exhibition of artistic expression as seen through the eye of the lens. Photographers throughout the United States are invited to submit entries for the exhibition. The exhibition will be on view to the public at the Texas Woman’s University East | West Galleries February 24th through April 13th 2020.
The exhibition and endowment were established by alumna Christine Shank and a small group of graduate students and named in memory of the mother of Professor Susan Kae Grant.
